Drever Mackenzie and Cypriot Brandy
You know what it's like when you go on holiday and return with that bottle of Cypriot brandy which tasted fantastic when you were over there but doesn't seem quite the same when you get back home.
Such was my experience with Drever Mackenzie a purchase from Portree, Skye's largest settlement.
A pleasant enough listen but not quite the same as listening to it whilst negotiating Skye's stunning Trotternish peninsula.
The Drever in question is not Kris but his old man Ivan with the Mackenzie being fellow Wolfstone member Wayne.
From 1997 it was erroneously re-issued as a Wolfstone recording under the new title The Strange Place
